MATHIS - The Pirates didn't go far to find their newest Head Coach as they signed former George West Longhorn Tim Holt to a two-year deal - making him the Athletic Director and new Head Football Coach. First reported by KRIS.
Holt had led George West on and off for a total of 11-seasons. In January he decided to leave the Longhorns for a job in Florida. He told me that he turned down the offer for a potential position with Sul Ross State, which ended up not working out. Around that same time Mathis approached him.
"I am very excited to get started and hopefully I can come in and make a difference and have some fun," he said.
Last season he led GW to an 8-3 record and a District 15-2A-Division 1 Title. Holt's career record is 168-105-5. Over the last five seasons his team has only lost one district game, while winning four district titles.
Holt replaces Ronnie Molina who wont 12 of 20 games over two seasons with the Pirates.
